Personal Development is at the heart of everything we do at Chapelford Village Primary School to ensure our children strive to become life-long successful and happy learners.

Our well-planned, sequenced and varied personal development curriculum runs throughout our school and provides our children with a range of nurturing experiences in which they can comfortably explore what it means to grow up in today’s society, encouraging them to develop personally, emotionally, socially and physically to support them to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilled life. 

Personal development plays a vital role in supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing and gives all children the opportunity to freely express themselves in a safe and caring environment, where all opinions and values are celebrated and welcomed. We ensure our children know how and when to ask for help and to know where to access support. 

It encourages children to develop a growth mindset and the resilience they need to meet any challenges. It gives children opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Through this curriculum, children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Skills children acquire:

  • Character development and the importance of values. 
  • How to build successful relationships and live within communities
  • Being a British citizen and the fundamental British Values
  • How to stay safe 
  • How to stay healthy, both physically and mentally

As a school, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular enrichment activities, as we strive towards our children accessing activities that meet their interests and develop a range of skills in an inclusive environment. This includes residential trips from years 2-6, ambitious music provision delivered through a range of instruments, developed lunchtime provision and a variety of after-school clubs that includes sign and sing, science, lego club, music and arts. We believe that enrichment activities have a big impact on children's social development, engagement with learning, academic success and general happiness.
